Michael Roman, a former Trump staffer implicated in the Fulton County, GA election interference case, recently filed a legal motion seeking to disqualify Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from the case. Roman’s action presents a variety of accusations against Ms. Willis, including allegations of an extra-marital affair. While Roman’s motion does not present any evidence of any crime, some legal analysts say that even the accusation of an affair might nonetheless impact how the trial proceeds.

Straight Arrow News contributor Dr. Rashad Richey explores the arguments and facts behind Roman’s motion against Willis and concludes that this whole thing is nothing more than a ploy to protect Donald Trump from inevitable criminal prosecution in the 2020 election interference case.

Under no circumstances does Mike Roman get away with the charges on face value, because everything has adhered to all of his basic rights. But this does dirty the water as it relates to the prosecution.

This is not about Mike Roman. This really is not about Fani Willis and the special prosecutor. This is all about stopping the prosecution from getting to Donald Trump. Understand the tactic here. If you can name a violation in law, name it, but there is none. If you can name a Constitutional right violation, name it. There is none.

Current presidential candidate Nikki Haley, well, according to sworn testimony, sworn affidavits, she engaged in multiple extra-marital affairs while being governor of South Carolina. Does that now disqualify her from running for president, or being the commander-in-chief, or having the ability to govern? What about her current relationships?

I do find it quite interesting that Donald Trump can literally be on record for cheating on his wife, be on video saying he likes to grab women by the “vajayjay” while being married, and there’s no issue with him. Food for thought.

Let me say a name to you, Mike Roman. Do you know Mike Roman is? Probably not. But you should. You see, Mike Roman is the defendant currently being prosecuted for trying to overthrow democracy. Fani Willis, the elected prosecutor in Fulton County, Georgia, she’s leading the prosecution against Trump and his co-defendants. Let’s call them cronies. Mike Roman is the guy who filed against Fani Willis. Well, his attorney did, citing that there’s a rumor Fani Willis and her co-counsel prosecutor, [that] they have a romantic relationship. Let’s talk about the reality of this motion.

 

Number one, the motion does not cite any adverse statutory or Constitutional violation against the actual defendant, Mr. Mike Roman. You see, typically in a motion, you are filing a motion because your client has somehow had a statutory legal right or a Constitutional right violated by the prosecutor. That right must be adhered to. Who may have hooked up with who does not count.

 

It is interesting to me that all of a sudden, the main thing is no longer the main thing. You see, Mike Roman was indicted by two different grand juries, a special purpose grand jury and then a normative grand jury brought a true bill. It’s called an indictment, constitutional rights in tech, statutory rights in tech. If anything, the Attorney General of Georgia, Mr. Chris Carr, may have the ability, the authority, to appoint a special prosecutor.

 

Under no circumstances does Mike Roman get away with the charges on face value, because everything has adhered to all of his basic rights. But this does dirty the water as it relates to the prosecution.

 

This is not about Mike Roman. This really is not about Fani Willis and the special prosecutor. This is all about stopping the prosecution from getting to Donald Trump. Understand the tactic here. If you can name a violation in law, name it, but there is none. If you can name a Constitutional right violation, name it. There is none.
